It's all about the shimmer this year with silver and gold touches on everything from the wedding dresses to decorations and cakes. Luckily for our SOLARIS brides, mother nature provides glistening silver & gold accents naturally, including the colorful sunset reflecting on the water. These metallics can be complimented with some many colors, from turquoise blue and emerald greens to the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year - Radiant Orchid (a beautiful pinky-purple shade).

Cruising Through Unique Entertainment for Your Wedding

Couples want to make their wedding as memorable and special to their guests as it is to them. Enter unique entertainment - from Photobooths to well, yacht weddings, guests will be treated this year to a plethora of memorable experiences. And if it's a destination wedding, you really want to give your guests a once-in-a-lifetime experience to thank them for making the trip. One of the main comments we hear from our SOLARIS couples about their wedding is how memorable of an experience it was for them AND their guests - from unlimited views of the sunset while cruising the water to dancing on the open air sky deck.

HashTag Destin Wedding Cruise


Disposable cameras are so 1999. This year, more couples will create their own custom hashtags that are displayed on tables for guests to post wedding pictures to Twitter and Instagram. This is an easy way for everyone to connect over the photos in one location. Some fun hashtags our wedding planners will use for SOLARIS couples this year? #[first names or last name]solariswedding #weddingcruisedestin
